Finding ways to substantially cut costs and complexity in an active, vibrant Data Centre is not easy. CIO’s have spent years trimming here and there and, to many, further demand from the business to reduce CAPEX/OPEX can seem like asking the impossible.

Nonetheless, significant additional reductions and effeciencies can be made possible where companies take a broader look at the way IT serves the business in a broad context. Key to this approach is the bringing together of “IT” and “Business” people in a combined effort to rationalise applications, processes, core infrastructure and operations. I have recently facilitated “IT/Business Alignment” workshops, forced both sides of the house to work together productively and have been amazed as to the opportunities that drop out of this exercise.  Well managed and facilitated workshops are a great way from stakeholders to express ideas, test theory and find “1+1=3...

IDC released its quarterly Storage Software Report yesterday, showing the market has experienced its first year-over-year decline in more than five years. And while most companies experienced a decline in revenue, Symantec was the only company that actually broke the trend and demonstrated growth during this same time period -- narrowing EMC’s market share in Overall Storage Software.

Part of Symantec’s success is due to its innovative storage and data protection software portfolio that helps organizations utilize current storage resources and ultimately save money.

The report shows the following about Symantec:

Symantec has narrowed EMC’s overall market share lead in Overall Storage Software (Symantec is number one among pure-play software providers)
Symantec continues to dominate market share in the Data Protection and File System categories over EMC and IBM, among others.
Symantec extends its market share lead over EMC in...
